This week we have Dan Legenthal breaking down how we can use our dancing to interact with the music:

Dance Like a Musician (7:30-8:30)
This class teaches you to make the music your 3rd partner. During this class you will build skills that allow you to predict the music and create with the musicians, instead of dancing reactively. Dan will lead you through specific textures, rhythms, footwork, and even borrow from tap dance to make you a part of the band.

Blues Basics + Beginner Clinic (8:30-9:30)
This weekly drop-in class is designed for new-to-blues dancers or anyone wanting to focus on the fundamentals. It will provide enough moves to have fun on the dance floor, as well the opportunity to hone and polish the core techniques behind the dance. Each week, we’ll cover something new, so you can come every week, or just drop in for a class or few. This class includes the beginner clinic, where you can work on your dancing one-on-one with instructors and advanced dancers. This month it will be taught by Jan Marie and Rob Donnelly.

Julie Brown and Sarah Elise will be behind the DJ booth to scratch your Blues itch.

As always, the lesson is $5 and the dance is an additional $5.
